Those cold winter winds just seem to blow colder and colder. Perhaps it is time to get out of town and into warmer climes. A great idea for a winter vacation is to fly out of the blustery north and head south. Rent an RV and get yourself to Orlando, Florida for a respite from the cold.
RV camping is never difficult to find around this marvelous Central Florida region. Stay near Orlando at the Tropical Palms Resort and Campground where you’ll find easy access to all the most famous spots. Orange Blossom KOA is also a top pick. There are plenty of RV parks surrounding Orlando where you can settle in and get ready for your winter Florida holiday.
Theme parks are the normal destination and the most famous ones are well known and loved. Visiting Walt Disney World is always the top of the list – and smartly too! You will never miss in touring this icon of family fun. Another top pick is Universal Studios Orlando where you get behind the scenes and right into the premiere excitement of the movie world. Discover shows, movie sets of a wide variety and more.
Another popular destination in Orlando is, of course, SeaWorld. All ages enjoy the shows and seeing the many marine animals up close. Dolphin and whales – nothing like watching their antics! Legoland Florida is perfect if your kids or grand kids are accompanying you on your trip. The rides are great fun and the entire experience is something out of a sort of fantasyland. But what else is there to do in Orlando besides the theme parks?
A unique chance to see Star Wars facts and trivia as well as learn some amazing scientific information exists at Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination. Here you will explore the technology you saw at work in the films and how research is leading us in the direction of putting these technologies to work for us in real life.
Explore the Orlando Museum of Art to see events, artworks and art encounters of all kinds. At the Bok Tower Gardens you must tour the gardens that have been voted Florida’s best by Florida Monthly Magazine. You will have the opportunity to see the Pinewood Estate mansion while you are here. It is a short drive to these lovely landscapes but well worth the time.
A host of great attractions remain to be seen. Stop at Gatorland and get REALLY close to some ferocious looking alligators. It will be safe though and you won’t become a meal for one of these monsters. Adults and kids love Whirly Dome where you can play a game of Whirly Ball (basketball) in bumper cars. And Ripley’s Believe It Or Not presents unbelievable artifacts from around the world. Your Orlando vacation may be the best one yet for a winter getaway filled with adventure.
